Behavioral disorders, also known as disruptive behavioral disorders, are very common in kids and adults. If left untreated in childhood, these disorders can negatively affect a person’s ability to lead a normal life, hold a job or maintain healthy relationships. Behavioral disorders may be broken down into a few types, which include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Disruptive behavioral disorders
- Dissociative disorders
- Emotional disorders
- Pervasive developmental disorders
Someone who has a behavioral disorder may act out or display emotional upset in different ways, which will also vary from person to person. Some of the emotional symptoms of behavioral disorders include:
- Easily getting annoyed or nervous
- Often appearing angry
- Putting blame on others
- Refusing to follow rules or questioning authority
- Arguing and throwing temper tantrums
- Having difficulty in handling frustration
Unlike other types of health issues, a behavioral disorder will have mostly emotional symptoms, with physical symptoms such as a fever, rash, or headache being absent. However, sometimes people suffering from a behavioral disorder will develop a substance abuse problem, which could show physical symptoms such as burnt fingertips, shaking or bloodshot eyes.
